Spicy - Justin Wilhelm
In anticipation of all the spicy foods and peppers I imagined we would see today I thought that I would bring the beverages. Beer is quite possibly my most favorite beverage to calm the heat from spicy foods (not just because I love beer), but because the carbonation really does help to 'scrub' your palette. It also does not leave the tannins that wine does which allows you to fully taste both the beverage and the food. So the next time you sit down to that spicy red curry at your favorite thai restaurant remember to order a beer. Better yet, skip the Heineken and order a Hitachino Nest White Ale!
